Through four games in 2020, Jones Jr., who is in the final year of his contract, has just 14 catches for 146 yards and one touchdown. According to Lions offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, those numbers are not something Jones Jr. is happy about.
From Detroit Free Press:
“I’ll tell you the truth,” offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell told reporters Tuesday during a conference call. “I mean, the guy does get frustrated. I think any time you’re a player of his caliber you feel like if I get the ball, I’m going to help the team. And that’s definitely something that, a mentality I want all our guys to have, that they want the ball. And Marv is no different.”
Bevell added that he is going to continue to try and find ways to get the ball in Jones Jr.’s hands in future games, even if it means getting creative.
“Does he want the ball? Absolutely. Do we want him to have the ball in his hands? Absolutely. And we’re going to continue to look for ways and try to be creative to make sure that the ball goes to him.”
